The Rest of our Kitchen

Hello everyone,
       How quickly the month is slipping by! I am sure you are all busy getting shopping,baking and decorating done. I am looking forward to a Christmas baking day soon but I do have my decorating done-one of the perks of being on a house tour!
  Anyway,I shared the dining part of our kitchen a few days ago but I thought you might like to see the rest of the kitchen.Although our home is 95 years old the kitchen was redone about six years ago.
 The cupboards were built by Joe Mitchell , a local cabinet maker and I am very happy with them. They are a creamy white with a glaze over them - very easy to care for.
I like having some touches of red to tie the cupboard area in with the dining area.
These are the original floors. The stove is built into the island.


The dining area for those who missed that post.
Well,now you have seen the rest of the kitchen so the family room will be next.

Thank you for visiting me,
Carolyn

How lovely Carolyn! The red is a perfect with your cabinets and they really suit the character of your Home. I finally got my cabbage rolls done tonight while my Sweetie is away on Business. I use sour cabbage so the Condo really needs aired out.. good thing the weather is so nice. Have a wonderful time doing your baking. Happy Holidays to you & your Family.

Your kitchen is charming. You must enjoy cooking in such a lovely atmosphere. I would love to live in an old house again. The house i grew up in must be 112 years old now.

Your kitchen and dining area are so lovely with a simple elegance I have come to expect from everything you touch.

But I must admit I had a hard time focusing on to much detail after spotting those adorable sheep figurines on the window sill...I adore sheep and can't wait to add real ones to our land, but also always on the lookout for some charming sheep statues also.

Blessings Kelsie

Beautiful Carolyn!
My favourite type of cupboards. This is a dream!!

Millie said...

I have been enjoying your virtual tour...but how great it would be to tour in person! Everything is so cozy and warm. I didn't realize you have a century home...how nice that must be.

Alex aus dem Gwundergarten said...

I love your kitchen! Wow, so much space and all that pretty cupboards. Unfortunately I've got a very small kitchen and there's no chance to make it bigger. Well, one can't have everything :o)... so I just enjoy your beautiful pictures.
Take care
Alex

The Sweetest Days said...

Carolyn you have inspired me to put lace curtains up over the windows. I'm currently making valances but the lace peeking out underneath will be quite lovely! Toile always seems to look good in a kitchen. Unfortunately I will be bidding mine ado with the new window treatments. My transferware will be staying though ; )

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

I really enjoyed your kitchen Carolyn~just my style! So much to love here, Joe did a great job on the cabinets and you have it decorated so nicely. Of course I love the transferware touches!

Robin@DecoratingTennisGirl said...

So pretty. Love the greenery in the toile pitcher. Very nice!

Linda said...

Hi Carolyn,

You know I looove your kitchen! It is so welcoming and lovely colours. Everything that you have on your countertops - I have the same: the tea set in the white iron caddy, the Kitchen Aid mixer, glass canisters, little white house (mine is a candle), the sheep and even the plates and mat are very similar!!! No surprise there, though, hey?! Midge just shakes his head cause you know what he thinks! Haha

Love you and hope your day is beautiful!

P.S. In your recent bedroom post, I have the same vertical print of the lady with the rose, peering out the window...Sigh.

There's a pkg on the way!
